Thomas Cooke and the BBC TV Antiques Road Trip
Yesterday I participated in filming an episode of the BBC TV Antiques Road Trip as a guest 'expert' talking about the instrument maker Thomas Cooke of York.
There was four hours of filming for about four minutes of TV!! As far as I am aware it is due to be aired sometime next year. It was great fun but quite tiring.
filming was undertaken at the York Castle Museum in their Victorian
Street where there is a ‘T. Cooke & Sons’ shop front. We also
filmed at the York Observatory in the Museum Gardens where there is a
4.5 inch Cooke telescope.
